Gets the task history for the Machine Creation Service.


Get-ProvTask [[-TaskId] <Guid>] [-Type <JobType>] [-Active <Boolean>] [-Metadata <String>] [-Property <String[]>] [-ReturnTotalRecordCount] [-MaxRecordCount <Int32>] [-Skip <Int32>] [-SortBy <String>] [-Filter <String>] [-FilterScope <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-AdminClientIP <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Returns a list of tasks that have run or are currently running on the Machine Creation Service.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
TaskId Specifies the task identifier to be returned. false false  
Type Specifies the type of task to be returned. false false  
Active Specifies whether currently running tasks only or completed tasks only are returned. false false  
Metadata Specifies the metadata entry that returned tasks should contain. false false  
Property Specifies the properties to be returned. This is similar to piping the output of the command through Select-Object, but the properties are filtered more efficiently at the server. false false  
ReturnTotalRecordCount When specified, the cmdlet outputs an error record containing the number of records available. This error record is additional information and does not affect the objects written to the output pipeline. See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false False
MaxRecordCount Specifies the maximum number of records to return. false false 250
Skip Skips the specified number of records before returning results. Also reduces the count returned by -ReturnTotalRecordCount. false false 0
SortBy Sorts the results by the specified list of properties. The list is a set of property names separated by commas, semi-colons, or spaces. Optionally, prefix each name with a + or - to indicate ascending or descending order. Ascending order is assumed if no prefix is present. false false The default sort order is by name or unique identifier.
Filter Gets records that match a PowerShell-style filter expression. See about_Prov_Filtering for details. false false  
FilterScope Gets only results allowed by the specified scope id. false false  
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false  
AdminClientIP Specifies the Client IP of the calling user false false  
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing user false false  
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false  
AdminAddress The address of a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops controller the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.
